uncertainty about the so-called fiscal cliff, tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect next year. if lawmakers don't reach a deal to avoid it, consumers could see higher taxes eating into their paychecks. even online sales suffered. compared to past years of double-digit growth, this year, online holiday sales rose only about 8%, compared to nearly 16% last year. overall, holiday spending accounts for up to 30% of retailers' annual sales, so the disappointing season is a concern for an economy struggling to recover. >> consumers need to have more confidence. consumers need to feel that their jobs are secure. it's not an ideal situation. it's more of a conservative, cautious time. and companies are managing carefully, consumers are spending carefully. >> reporter: retailers are now hoping to lure consumers with deep discounts of 75% to 80% off in some cases as they try to salvage profits from this lackluster holiday shopping season. jim. >> axelrod: so, elaine, this is the first set of holiday shopping numbers that we've seen. any chance that they'll be revised as we get more data

fiscal cliff, leading to less disposable income next year. so this year, it's taking more than a good deal for retailers to make a sale. >> a lot of people talk about value. the thing they don't talk about is affordability. so while you may think that sweater at barney's or nordstrom's is a value, at whatever price it is, you can't afford it. and affordability is something that is resonating a lot more than value. >> reporter: so the season is not expected to be a sparkling one for merchants, with gains in the low to mid single digits. discounters are expected to do better than luxury stores. but don't forget, it is the holidays, and christmas just wouldn't be the same without a few splurges. >> we kind of get in the spirit of shopping. we go, okay, okay one more, oh they'd really like that, he'd really like that-- and a little for myself, too. >> reporter: erika miller, nbr, new york. >> susie: don't let the fiscal cliff scare you away from buying stocks. that's the advice to investors from andy cross, the chief investment officer at the motley fool. tom hudson recently spoke with hi

too small. >>> while congress has been arguing over the fiscal cliff, the next big battle has already arrived. treasury secretary tim geithner says government borrowing hits the debt ceiling today. with me now, former new hampshire republican senator judd gregg. he's currently co-chairman of the campaign to fix the debt. senator, let's -- i want to start 50,000 feet, and we'll move down closer to ground level, but as a former member of the senate, we've now had two grand bargains, one around the debt ceiling, one around the fiscal cliff, seemingly, well, on the debt ceiling definitely, and on this one, seemingly fall apart. now that you're on the outside, are people right to be skeptical that congress can do anything? i hesitate to say big. even medium in terms of addressing our debt and spending problems? >> oh, they're absolutely correct in being skeptical, but congress can act. it has acted in the past. regrettably, it usually acts in crisis. for example, during the financial meltdown, when the entire banking system of our nation would have collapsed, congress did act. and we've ac

fellow republicans he hoped to have a fiscal cliff recommendation soon. >> we will be working hard to see if we can get there in next 24 hours and so i am hopeful and optimistic. >> reporter: but the sticking point remains finding something that can make it through the house with enough support from republicans. >> it seems like the 250 threshold that the president proposed previously is unlikely to pass the house in its current form, and so without some sort of additional compromise there, it seems unlikely that we're going to get something done before the end of the year. >> susie: you know thanks for that report. i am just wondering from all of the reporting you have done, do you think we are better off with a bad deal than no deal at all? >> you know susie when peopletal they are talking about a bad deal in political terms. frankly it's republicans that are most worried about the bad deal they have most leverage. the president has the most leverage. they are worried about a bad deal. any deal that gets us past the fiscal cliff is going to be seen as a good deal. >> susie: it seems like we are further apart than las

from both sides of the aisle are trying to hammer out a deal to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff. >> just three days to go, a breakdown of how the negotiations went today and what happens next. >> in washington, there is still hope that a deal could be done to avoid the fiscal cliff. all eyes were on the senate today where negotiators were trading revenue figures to try to reach an agreement all sides can agree with. the baseline for the president and the bipartisan deal would have to extend unemployment benefits that would affect 2 million americans and it would have to increase taxes on the highest income earners. the negotiators will still have to work out where exactly the tax increases would hit and whether they would stop the increase of the estate tax. the president has asked democratic leader harry reid to prepare a separate bill to put on the senate floor that would increase taxes for households that earn a quarter million dollars or more, and respect -- expect republicans would block that proposal. but rather than take it back as a stopgap measure, think of it as a political move to try to shift the responsibility of failure on to republi watches the hour of reckoning. >

get past the fiscal cliff in the next two days? have you that $16 trillion staring us in the face? >> eric, let's look for a silver lining in this fiscal cliff discussion. i think what we are hearing from the american public, loud and clear is that they don't want to pay any more taxes. they don't want to pay for the government they are getting that. leaves two choices. number 1, we continue to borrow money or reduce spending. we won't have the option to borrow forever. so we have to reduce spending. if the american people will get as fired up about reducing spending, we might have a chance to fix that. clearly, that message hasn't gotten through to the white house and to the senate. it is heard loud and clear in the house, but we control just the house. >> eric: how do you get that message across and the american people say, instead of dealing with the tacks going up -- trying to deal with the other side of this issue? >> we continue to have the debate. that's what this is about. that's why we are on television and why we do what we do in the house, to try to draw attention to th
